Since 1986, the CNEP has supported you in understanding the aging phenomena of your polymer materials. Thanks to our expertise and knowledge in chemistry we can guide you to effectively control the durability or degradation of your products.
In addition, our skills in analysis of plastic materials and our many scientific devices allow us to respond to your requests for characterization or expertise of failures.
Established in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region near Clermont-Ferrand (France) over more than 1500m², our laboratory has one of the largest parks of accelerated photo-aging chambers, ventilated and climatic ovens as well as more specific durability or aging prediction devices.
The CNEP also has a wide range of physico-chemical analysis devices, including multiple spectrometers, microscopes, chromatographies or characterization devices.
This equipment, covering a vast experimental and analytical field, allows us to respond quickly and efficiently to the numerous requests concerning polymer materials.
